I'm traveling to the USA next week and want to purchase a new Intel Mac Mini. But online I can't find out if the Mac Mini's power supply are auto sensing so that they work for 110V and 220V.

If you have a new Mac Mini, could you take a quick look at the power supply and let me know what it is? (I know I'll have to cut off the plug to make it fit in European power outlets).

Thanks

It is autoswitching.

I have an aussie mini, and ironically on its power supply there is a big 110V printed on it, but if you look closely at the fine print it is stated 110V and 220V

One thing I just found out, and which you all may want to make note of: The old Mac mini (1st Gen PowerPC) uses an 85 W power brick. The new Intel-based Mac mini uses a 110 W power brick. This means you CANNOT use an older power brick to power a new Mac mini; whether you can use a newer power brick to power an older Mac mini will be left to someone braver than I to answer (I don't wanna zap my old Mac mini by feeding it too much power).
